The akward construction of HELPING at the end should be erased immediately since it is akward and not parallel with the sentence construction so C and D are out. B and E are too wordy for me with the inclusion of capability so I will choose A.

E for me.

A and B can not be correct since "that" would be referring to the action of testing, and an action can not "proper aircraft". C doesn't make much sense and parallelism is not kept. In D and E, the pronoun "it" is introduced in order to refer to the motor. But D is not parallel. Therefore E must be.

I go with 'A'

A - Is the correct answer.
B - Too long.
C,D,E - Can be eliminated straight.

My guess is E for the same reason that in A 'that' can refer to testing, in E 'it' more closely refers to the jet engine
